Wig’s Word of God Today 11-11-2012
To give as the Poor Widow who gave her livelihood to care.
Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment, so also Christ, offered once to take away the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to take away sin but to bring Salvation to those who eagerly await Him. Hebrews 12:27-28
First Kings 17:10-16, Psalm 146, Hebrews 9:24-28 & Mark 12:38-44
How do you see your life as the ending draws near? Do the wonders of an afterlife linger in your mind seemingly vanishing as the reality of everyday life knocks on your being fornicating your soul to believe the flash and flair of a secular lived life of constrained lived inhabitation? Do you see this time constraint on your life as the end or just the beginning? What we live now represents what we will find in Eternity, right? Will we frolic with angels along the Streets of Gold or just linger in the Presence of a Son united as One with the Father?
I believe it is here that we fail to talk or really discuss the faith we must live to acquire the Promise God instilled and gave Christ Jesus to the world allowing you and me life and life abundantly. I know, the offers of flesh, fortune and fantasy seem to have a lingering smell of enticement but the results are death without a Christ surrender taking place. The effects of Jesus on your life takes upon a knowledge of faith, charity and love where hope is lived each day for the glory of God Himself. What you smell in flesh, fortune and fantasy can become the souls that need to be saved from the excess of sin sharing the Salvation that saved the world.
Yesterday, I was wearing my solid black shirt that reads on the front, “I’m the Catholic the devil warned you about,” when I met a couple who were new to Miami donating a few items for the Disabled American Veterans of Coral Gables where I am the Adjutant/Treasurer. The man immediately read my shirt and chuckled wanting it seemed for his wife to read the shirt too. We chatted about the boxes until we loaded up and he asked where a Catholic Church was locally.
By the time we left their side I had recited “You Can’t Imagine” and prayed with them sharing the love of God at His best. This love we share of God is the very reason we wait in hope of Christ’s Second Coming to eagerly await the Salvation promised to all sinners. We can enjoin our lives as One to find God’s Truth in the pages of the living Word of God that sits on your counter day-after-day not being opened or revered. Share as God intended. Shake with fear splendid. Shalom for a life lived in Christ’s Concord. Amen.
Let us pray: Dear LORD, we pray to eagerly await Your coming sharing the Truth we revere. Here our prayers LORD. We pray in Christ’s Risen Name indeed. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!
Poor widow gave more in hardship– Mark 12:38-44
In the time of His Teaching
He asked us to beware
Of Scribes in long robes
Greeting with selfish flair
They seek honor at banquets
Devour widows they dare
Reciting lengthy prayers to shadow
The severe condemnation they stare
He observed the crowd giving
Treasury money they share
Rich people giving their surplus
While the widow gave poverty’s spare
Amen He said with pleasure
Teaching the disciples to dare
Poor widow gave more in hardship
Her livelihood lived to care
